    diner524's Note:

    I have been going through all of my TOH magazines pulling out the recipes I had marked to try. This recipe is so versatile and can be made ahead and frozen, then just take out of bake. Can replace swiss cheese with another cheese (I like cheddar also) and could use bacon or sausage for the the ham. In first step, melt butter, could add in minced onion/shallot/garlic or red/green bell pepper to soften and then continue with recipe. Also could use light for reduced fat butter and cheeses, egg substitute and skim milk to reduce the calories. Have fun with the recipe and make it fit your family preferences!!! Update 7/31/11 - I made these this morning as written except subbing cheddar cheese for the Swiss and I added some sliced green onion. What a great breakfast or brunch recipe, as they can be made ahead, frozen and then baked on the day you want to serve it.

    1. 1
      In a small saucepan, melt 2 tablespoons butter. Stir in flour until smooth; gradually add milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheeses and salt. Set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large nonstick skillet, melt remaining butter over medium heat. Add eggs to the pan; cook and stir until almost set. Stir in ham and reserved cheese sauce; heat through. Remove from the heat.
    3. 3
      Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface. (Keep remaining phyllo covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out.) Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons bread crumbs. Fold in half lengthwise; brush again with butter. Spoon 1/2 cup filling onto phyllo about 2 inches from a short side. Fold side and edges over filling and roll up.
    4. 4
      Brush with butter. Repeat. Place desired number of strudels on a greased baking sheet; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon cheese and 1 teaspoon parsley. Bake at 375° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately.
    5. 5
      To freeze and bake strudels: Individually wrap uncooked strudels in waxed paper and foil. Freeze for up to 1 month.
    6. 6
      Place 2 inches apart on a greased baking sheet; sprinkle with cheese and parsley. Bake at 375° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown.

      I took the ingredients to my parent's house to make for Father's Day. My phyllo dough did NOT survive the trip. I ended up having to use crescent rolls to wrap this in, but the filling is GREAT. The phyllo would make it even more "special",but either way is great. Made for ZWT7.

      Brilliant recipe! I loved the fact that instead of sprinkling cheese over the egg mixture, there is a cheese sauce blended in- it made them extra gooey and tasty! I used low fat sausage and low fat cheddar as suggested in the intro and was very happy with the flavour combination. This is one I'll make again, playing around with various fillings. Thanks for a keeper! Made for ZWT6.
